Flight 278, carrying 112 passengers and five crew, had just landed in Burbank on a flight from Oakland, said Brandy King, a spokeswoman for the Dallas-based carrier.

The Boeing 737 came to a sudden stop after hitting a barrier created to catch aircraft that leave the runway.

Another image from the side of the plane shows one of the wings severely damaged as a result of the crash. Firefighters were seen helping passengers off the plane and taking luggage out of the aircraft.

The FAA confirmed the incident on Twitter, saying the plane came to rest in the Engineered Material Arresting System, a bed to quickly stop aircraft, at the end of the runway.

Scott said he knew the plane had skidded off the runway when he saw mud splashing against the windows and the headlights from cars on the road behind the airport wall.

A Southwest Airlines flight traveling from Oakland slid off of the runway at Hollywood Burbank Airport north of Los Angeles amid heavy rain Thursday morning.

Southwest Airlines canceled all flights from Hollywood Burbank Airport through 3 p.m. Customers were urged to check their flight status at www.southwest.com.

The runway where the incident occurred is closed, but another runway is operational and the airport remains open, Burbank airport officials said.

Reported visibility was about one mile with a ceiling of 1,300 feet.
